“Bar Harbor outlook”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

If you came to Bar Harbor for the town and not for Acadia National Park, then Agamont Park is a good spot to watch people and boats. This is a nice green island in the middle of busy Bar Harbor when you're tired of crowded sidewalks, souvenir shops and restaurants. The grassy park has a refreshing fountain, many trees and and flowering bushes and a great view of the harbor, distant islands and all kinds of boats from sailboats to sloops to lobster boats to ocean-going cruisers. The park also has wifi for those who absolutely have to check their email on their smart phones. But Bar Harbor is only a small part (and not the best park in my opinion) of Mount Desert Island - get out of town and onto the trails or explore some of the smaller villages where the views are just as good and the place not so crowded.

Relax and enjoy the view. The town hangs out and just has fun.
Nice place with wonderful views. One of the village greens in town.

“Great for people watching!”

After a lovely dinner at Galyn's, strolled across the street to the park. Watched people playing, walking & talking, enjoying ice cream and watching the sunset. Happy place!

“great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

unfortunately they have 'updated' the park for the benefit of visitors. the old fountain and cannon are still there but it's not the same as it was.
